    While reading the specs on the new Mac tower yesterday, I read a strange line. Maximum Altitude 10,000ft., what happens to computers after 10,000 ft. I tried to search for an answer but came up blank. Any thoughts on this.:confused:

    if it has liquid cooling. Maybe the cooling evaporates at room temperature?

    It has to do with air pressure and the hard drives.

    Note: That OPERATING pressure. It'll survive shipping in the wild blue yonder.
